If you look at my own <A HREF="http://homepage.mac.com/sigfpe/paper.pdf" REL="nofollow">paper</A> on the subject you'll see some actual C++ code that implements numbers in such a structure. That should bring it down to earth in a practical way.sigfpehttp://www.blogger.com/profile/08096190433222340957noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-11295132.post-1154312501768376002006-07-30T19:21:00.000-07:002006-07-30T19:21:00.000-07:00i guess I don't get it. how isf(x + d ) = f(x) + f...i guess I don't get it. how is<BR/><BR/>f(x + d ) = f(x) + f'(x)d ?Sureshhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/16443460499476270978noreply@blogger.com
